Driver Recognition Programme
At Fleet Forum, we also acknowledge the corresponding organisation who understands the critical role their drivers play in delivery of aid and development and take the time to show appreciation for their drivers. The programme was launched in 2015 with funding from the FIA Foundation and UPS Foundation. Since then, the programme has been run annually in East Africa. In 2018, the programme expanded to South East Asia. For photos of the previous editions of the Driver Recognition Programmes, click our photo gallery.
This year, we should be celebrating the 5th programme anniversary, but due to the Covid-19 Pandamic, we had to run our programme differently from previous years. Click here for the 2020 programme and finalists.
Previous programme set-up:
The competition consists of the following:
Participating organisations nominate own light vehicles (sedans / 4×4) drivers based on joint eligibility criteria
Country qualifying rounds take place, in which practical driving skills and / or driver knowledge are tested
Final event in which the best drivers from different countries compete to be the best driver and win the annual Driver Award. The finals simulate a ‘typical day in the life of a driver’
At the heart of this programme is our desire to acknowledge the critical role that drivers play in the delivery of aid and development.
We aim to bring together three elements:
engaging in a fun manner;
reinforcing healthy and safety practices and;
improving data collection on driver performance.
